Abstract:

Patrick Cutler, a cavalry officer criticized for his friendship with the Army's Indian trackers, leads the pursuit of Caballito, an Apache chief who, with a band of renegades, has left the reservation in the confusion of New Mexico's Madison County War.

There are a handful of great novels about the American West, and Oakley Hall has written two of them-- Warlock and The Bad Lands. Now, with Apaches, Oakley Hall completes his monumental trilogy, bringing together two of the mightiest legends of the frontier. The setting : New Mexico in the 1880s. In the midst of the bloody Lincoln County Wars, the dark fates of a young cowboy and an Indian chief are linked with epic force. Apaches is a sweeping saga of outlawry-- of the violence that explodes from the tumultuous conflict from independent men bound to the old frontier ways caught in the inexorable drive of civilization. At the center of this bold and lustful tale are : Caballito, the courageous chief of the Bosque Alto Apaches, a fierce and intelligent warrior who foresees the tragic destiny of his race. Johnny Angell, a pretty cowboy and a deadly shot who sets out to become a righteous avenger of wrongs ... and finds himself branded an outlaw. Patrick Cutler, a nonconformist cavalry officer who valiantly leads a team of Apache scouts and is said to prefer them to his own people. Lily, Maginnis, a magnetic, cultivated woman who struggles to make a civilized life in a raw and corrupt territory outpost. Frank Maginnis, Lily's husband, a lawyer from an established Eastern family, who fights against the injustices surrounding the death of a beloved rancher. Jack Grant, a humorless and totally dedicated sheriff known to "always get his man," now on the trail of Johnny Angell. Apaches is a story of grand adventure, drama, and romance-- of white men's swindles, Indian attacks, avenging posses, passionate love affairs, and larger-than-life villains and lawmen. With great authenticity and vitality, Oakley Hall brings to life a tale of unforgettable characters who turned the wilderness into history, and history into legend -- Book jacket.
